The Lyrics

Elton ain't easy to love and he's fodder for jokes
He's not a bad guy, but just ain't like other folks
Outrageous fashions of extreme loud colors
A bangin' piano each day
And you won't understand him an' he won't die young
He'll probably just ride away

Mamas don't let your babies grow up to wed Elton
Don't let 'em wear high hats, or dress in a tux
Make 'em hang tough, ride a bronco that bucks
Mamas don't let your babies grow up to wed Elton
Don't let 'em play house, spend too much time alone
Give 'em the right kind of love

Elton will trade off a pool room for queer mountain mornings
Purple sunglasses, and willing young guys of the night
Them that don't know him won't like him, and them that do,
Sometimes won't know how to take him
He ain't wrong, He's just different, but gay pride won't let him
Do things to make you think he's right

So, Mamas don't let your babies grow up to wed Elton
Don't let 'em wear high hats, or a sequined tux
Make 'em hang tough, ride a bronco that bucks
Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to wed Elton
Don't let 'em play house, spend too much time with girls
Give 'em the right kind of love

And I think it's gonna be a long, long time before you write another one as good as this. But maybe not!

Always proud to see a great country song on this site... Country dosn't get the appriation it deserves. Or for that matter the slandering of gay musicans, as it deserves... Mind if I do a little shamless plugging here? My version of Elton's Wedding Song, to Circle Of Life... http://www.amiright.com/parody/90s/eltonjohn22.shtml

I was just reviewing parodies of this OS and this one stands out. Very well done on both the humorous and the practical level.
